Protesters in Wisconsin urge Trump to release tax returns

Hundreds protested outside of Trump's speech

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) -- Hundreds of protesters are calling on President Donald Trump to release his tax returns while they wait for the Republican to arrive at a Wisconsin manufacturing company.
The protesters outside Snap-on Inc. in Kenosha held signs on Tuesday criticizing several of Trump's policies, including his plan to build a wall on the border with Mexico and his proposed travel ban that's tied up in court.
Retired high school teacher Tom Gilding was among the protesters on Tax Day. He held a sign that read, "What are you afraid of, Donald? Release your taxes," and helped hold up an inflated chicken made to resemble Trump.
Demonstrators called the President the "Outsourcer in Chief" skeptical of Trump's Buy American Hire American Executive Order.

"It's not going to do anything to protect American jobs and we know from the way Donald Trump does business that he doesn't care about American workers," said Scot Ross of One Wisconsin Now.

Many people came to show their support for Trump.

"Try to get a glimpse of him and see what all the protesting is about, said Richard Baumann, Trump supporter who lives in Kenosha.

"I think they're all confused," said Tim Gilchrist, Trump supporter who traveled from the Chicagoland area.

Trump plans to sign an order in Wisconsin to tighten rules on technology companies bringing in highly skilled foreign workers. He narrowly carried Wisconsin in November.
Everything remained peaceful throughout the entire demonstration at Sunnyside Park in Kenosha.
